Posted Thursday November 8, 2012 2:25 PM GMT

Stepping out for some media duties, Jessica Chastain showed up at ABC Studios in Times Square, New York City earlier today (November 8).

Joined by “Downton Abbey” hunk Dan Stevens, the “Help” actress was in the house to promote her new play “The Heiress” on “Good Morning America.”

Jessica explained, “I’ve actually done more plays than films, which I know is surprising for people because all of a sudden it was like, ‘Everywhere, Chastain!’ in movies. But yeah, it’s been really great. This is my Broadway debut. It has been a dream to be on
Broadway and to be here with this ensemble.”

As for why she loves her stage gig, Chastain gushed, “As an actor I want to play different kinds of women and I don’t want to be associated with a certain look for each part because I want to be allowed to age. The wonderful thing about [different roles I’ve had] is that they look so different.”
